The unanswered question is whether free Wi-Fi will draw businesses.

I live in Campbell, next door to San Jose. The report in the paper today shows the city ready to offer free Wi Fi in 5 locations (convention center, plaza, etc.) Plus, it's offered by a commercial company for free for the first year. They also note that the commercial operator will be identifying usage trends to quantify the value they are delivering to the city. It seems to me that this is just preparation for handing the city a bill.
